ATEQ TPM Quick Set Tool

I read every thread related to sensors and how to manage new ones, old ones, spare sets, etc. and settled on the ATEQ Quickset tool- that was definitely the right decision. I have a set of winter tire/wheels and a summer set. This tool is so easy to use it's ridiculous- makes dealing with tpms sensors a breeze. I have a buddy who owns a tire store and is always complaining about expensive units he has that don't work, especially on foreign cars.
I showed him my unit and he so impressed he bought mine on the spot so he could use it in his shop that day. I go another one right away.
Buy this tool- you will not regret it.

Does anybody know the compatibility between the years? I know reprogramming is necessary, but I'm swapping whole tire/rims from an 07 to my 13, and vice versa. Are the sensors compatible with both trucks. Both alloy wheels, sport and offroad trim swap.

'07 to current (possibly '06) should all be compatible. Alloy is compatible with alloy, steel is compatible with steel.
My biggest concern about buying used from a vehicle older than an '11 or so is that lithium batteries are only designed to have a 5-year life.
Some do better, and some applications (like my Lojack transponder) go through them in 6 months.
I have an '08, and the next time I change my tires I will replace the transponders if I have the budget for them.

I don't remember seeing a different between the sensors that came in my sport wheels, and the one in the spare

One gets a 45 degree angle and one gets a 90 degree angle.
The steel sensors can be used in alloy wheels if they are rotated 180, but you have to remember to inform any future tire installers that this has been done or they will break the sensor when they dismount the old tires.

Didn't Toyota stop putting a sensor in the spare after 2007?

My 08 has/had one. I've had them removed from the tires. All 5 look identical.

It'd be nice if Toyota added the ability for the ECU to remember up to 10 sensor IDs, but that's available on the Tacoma.
Am I reading this right? Does the Tacoma allow for 10 sensor IDs? I am asking because I am looking at getting a set of off-road tires to put on when I am going out but keeping the highway tires for normal use.
